Why DCD>Dallas?

The Dallas-Fort Worth area is an economic powerhouse supporting multiple tech enabled sectors such as defence, financial services, information technology and transportation. Dallas itself serves as one of the most important telecoms interconnection points in the country making it a magnet for data center activity. 

This national event pulls together the most senior decision makers from the world of colocation, cloud and telco data centers to discuss how the next generation of Infrastructure-as-a-service will be designed, built and interconnected.
